Nude models claiming: "I'd Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur"; billboards reading: "Breeders Kill Shelter Dogs' Chances--Always Adopt and Practice Animal Birth Control"; print ads exclaiming: "Calling All Children, Don't Go To the Circus!" Pointed, outrageous

no, i don't think it is extreme, it is just right!! circus animals suffer, i saw this already when i was 5, and they get very badly treated and anyway, animals are no clowns!!! they get abused and tortured for the financia benefit of the circus owners. they have to perform things, that are obviously against their nature. no peta is right!!! when i was little, i didn't want to go to the circus anymore, even if my grownups were angry about me and punished me. children should learn to love and respect animals the way they are, not as clowns, anyone can abuse and treat horrible!!!l

Sometimes more extreme attention is good, to bring the awareness to people more and more. Animals are special lives that need to be respected and taken care of. so I think this is good.

I think that what is being done to animals everywhere is VERY EXTREME so therefore extreme actions are quite appropriate!!

The truth is extreme-there is no point in Peta,aiming for an accomadation with consciousnesses that are comfortably numbed,by our Murdochracy-Its amazing how holding up a mirror to society,can be seen as extremism?????????

And PETA never quits. This week, they announced their new campaign—renaming fish “sea kittens.”
Is this true?
If so, extremists have taken control of PETA and all its good work will be ignored.
This campaign is not only nonsense, it hurts and demeans animal rights thought the world.
